During her TCA panel, Rae revealed that writers were busy working on ideas for the show’s fourth season, with plans to begin shooting in September.
The showrunner also dished that the upcoming season will include ten episodes, instead of the usual eight.
Back in April, HBO programming chief Casey Bloys confirmed that the series would not return until 2020 due Rae’s busy schedule.
“Issa became a big movie star,” Bloys said. “We’re not the first place to deal with this, but when you’re in business with very creative and talented people, there’s a lot more opportunities for people to do things.”
Earlier this year, Rae starred alongside Marsai Martin and Regina Hall in Little and is attached to executive produce Robin Thede’s new comedy series, A Black Lady Sketch Show.
